Russian Defense Ministry: Tor-MXNUMU anti-aircraft defense complexes have begun to perform combat duty in the Kuril Islands


“At present, the air defense duty is organized as part of two batteries of anti-aircraft missile systems Tor-MXNUMU,” the message reads. Interfax-AVN.

Tor-M2U, developed by the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern, is a complex of a new generation of short-range air defense systems of the Tor family. It is intended for the organization of air defense of the most important military and government facilities from aircraft strikes, cruise missiles, helicopters, guided missiles, guided and planning bombs, unmanned aerial vehicles, within the zone of destruction of the complex, at night and in the afternoon, in a complex meteorological and jamming environment.

The combat vehicle of the Tor-MXNUMU air defense missile system can be configured to simultaneously detect more than 2 targets, ranking them according to the degree of danger, firing and tracking four targets simultaneously with four successively launched rockets. Anti-aircraft guided missiles of the complex were developed specifically for the effective interception of small-sized intensively maneuvering targets, which creates a significant advantage over the closest counterparts from abroad.

    How did I wait for this news! .. Finally, they covered up the most airborne dangerous direction, now the Japanese and their helicopter carriers will not be able (as if in passing) to hint Russia about a possible Japanese landing operation to seize several islands or the entire Kuril ridge. Lick it ... the USA is one thing the Japanese, but not everyone wants to pay for a hypothetical adventure with dozens of helicopters with an airborne assault on the approach to the Kuril Islands ... wink

    Still, there would be more "Klabov" / "Bastions" on the Kuriles, and air defense of the S-400 / BUK-M3 type ... But in any case, "Plate mitten" (Classification "TOP" according to NATO classification) will reliably cover OUR islands from air especially from the US satellite landing.

      What does the helicopter have to do with it. Helicopters there and from Hokkaido calmly fly. And it seems that the Japanese are going to negotiate with us. Friendship world laughing

        I did not understand the cons. That someone is seriously going to fight with the Japanese, or believes that they will treacherously attack the "defenseless" Kurils? In general, the Torah is intended to cover moving parts and connections at a medium distance. Initially, as far as I know, tank. The Kurils themselves, individually and "across", are small. I don't know why the Torah was put there. I think because of the track (off-road).

      Three S-400 divisions have already been deployed
      3 divisions in 53 DPVO 1532 zrp Pacific Fleet (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky) differs from the earlier set by the presence 24 PU (3 divisions) deployed in 2015.

    Well, the answer is nowhere clearer to all the "claims" on territorial issues from the "sun-rising".

    And what was there before the "Thor" and where did it go? Is it a reinforcement or a replacement, or were there Kuril Islands without cover?

    Air defense systems alone do not solve the problem. You need to have all the options for defensive means in sufficient quantities !!! Troop personnel who will not profit from military equipment. And of course the naval grouping, which at the Pacific Fleet is practically plundered, drank, sold. What is, compared to the Japanese fleet, looks modest. New "Boreas" for other tasks.

    And what a "happy" message for Japan. Now the next rustling of skeletons in the closet will begin.

    The Kuril Islands are a loose concept (from Shumshu to Habomai about 1200 km. It would be interesting to know where exactly the complexes with a range of 15 km were built, taking into account the fact that the pevashny radar network in the region was mostly destroyed back in the early 90's (jeans , chewing gum, friendship, etc.)
    In short: in the case of a global sheer, it is still not possible to punish - hands are short.

    Yeah ... covered up. Damn, but be realistic at last. Well, do not express such intense admiration .. 2 batteries (8 combat vehicles) with a range of 12-15 km per 1200 km of island length ??? This is what you call cover and impossibility for the Japanese fleet. The defeat zone does not even cover territorial waters ... Or do you think that there will be a fighting vehicle on every island? It won’t work out that way.
    ... "Dozens of helicopters will pay off."


    64 rockets in 4 vehicles. Maximum - firing 32 targets, then silence for 18 minutes, reloading. Or you think that the radio command will be protected from their electronic warfare, and the Japanese will climb, as they say, "not knowing the ford." no cover?
    Well it’s good that at least something started to change, but 2 batteries are NOT CLOSING

    Gain. Before that, the 18th artillery and machine gun division (on Kunashir and Iturup) had 12 Strela-10 missile launchers (unfortunately, I don’t know the modification), 12 Shiloks and EMNIP, either 8 or 10 ZU- 23-2. That's all the air defense. Now 8 more "Tor" SOUs have been added. And all this on two islands. Rest.....

    Apparently on Kunashir and Iturup, where the division is deployed

    Putin first has to "call in" on the Kuril Islands. Grab the "gifts of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk" and the plan of the Soviet offensive on the Japanese islands in '45. Are there cats in the Kuril Islands? A bear will do too ...... everything that was done in Japan is done in China ... everything that is done in China is done in ..... drinks

    It doesn’t matter how many more cars are on duty. The main thing is that this happened after the meeting of Lavrov with a Japanese colleague. Lavrov is a trolling fan ... smile

    Yes, by the way, I beg your pardon. Back in 2008-2009 there were a dozen "Buk" (the first modification, as far as I remember). is there now - HZ. And what happened after the meeting of the ministers is a matter of chance. it was planned back in 2011, 4 years ago and only now got around to it ...
